Man Shot And Killed While Camping Identified
ALLENSPARK, Colo. (AP) — A man shot and killed while camping in Boulder County has been identified.
David Munoz-Tarin, 24, of Denver, died in Allenspark on Monday following the incident at Olive Ridge Campground.
Sheriff’s Sgt. Jason Oehlkers said the shooting occurred shortly after 1 a.m. Monday at a campground in the Arapaho-Roosevelt National Forest near Allenspark.
The site is about 20 miles northwest of Boulder.
Oehlkers declined to say whether the wound was self-inflicted or to identify the type of gun.
No one has been arrested and no one else was hurt.
Oehlkers said Munoz-Tarin was shot in the face. An autopsy has been completed but cause and manner of death are pending further investigation.
Oehlkers says more than a dozen people were in the victim’s group. Some were drinking but Oehlkers didn’t know if Munoz-Tarin was.
Investigators are interviewing other campers.
